Same Great Virgin mobile Experience

Get the same innovative mobile experience you’ve come to expect from Virgin Mobile on your
Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular).

Seamlessly connect your
 Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) with your mobile plan to share your data & minutes.


We do things differently.

Doing things differently is the Virgin way of doing things, and has been since 1970.

Now, we’re doing it again in the United Arab Emirates as the preferred mobile service provider for people looking for a smarter way of doing things.

We started by being the first in the region to offer deals without yearly contracts, but that was just the beginning. We’ve thrown out everything frustrating about the mobile experience, like long and complicated contracts, having to visit the store and wait in lengthy queues, and the constant hidden charges. 

Instead, we give you access to everything you need to be a Virgin Mobile customer from one award-winning app. You’ll never be put on hold by a call centre again.

We’re rethinking mobile. We’re Virgin Mobile.

Can I choose any Virgin Mobile plan for my Apple Watch Series 5 (cellular)?

Yes, you can pick any Virgin Mobile plan of your choice. In fact, if you run out of data, you can also benefit from a data booster. Did you know we double your data on all data boosters for free? You’re welcome.

With your Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) linked to your Virgin Mobile plan, you can make calls, reply to messages, receive notifications and a whole lot more – even while away from your iPhone.

And because you’re using Virgin Mobile, you’ll receive the same awesome service our customers have come to expect from us. No waiting in queues. No mandatory contracts. Just a great mobile experience.

To connect your Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular) eSIM to your Virgin Mobile plan, make sure you have the following:

Best App 2019

Gulf Customer Experience Awards

Just got a line for my son and I’m so in love with the quality - rates compared to Du and Etisalat - the app is wow, no other operator has something like it; you manage everything from your place; paying, managing your plan... lots of things. well done, I'm addicted to Virgin Mobile!

Why I chose Virgin after being almost 5 years on Etisalat? Cos you don’t need to sign any contracts to get a plan you want at reasonable price (cheaper than Du or Etisalat). The app itself is super convenient.

Got questions?


Is the iPhone required for Apple Watch Series 5 (cellular)?

While the new Apple Watch Series will have its own eSIM, you will still need to pair it with an iPhone.  Apple Watch Series 5 and Apple Watch Series 3 require an iPhone 6s or later with iOS 13 or later version. You can even use your cellular connection for Emergency SOS.

To check or download the latest software version on your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Software Update.
You will also need the latest carrier settings. On your iPhone, tap Settings > General > About and follow the prompt to update to the latest carrier settings. Your Apple Watch (cellular) needs to be on WatchOS version 4.2.2 or later.

How many active Apple Watches can I have for my number?

 You can have two active eSIMs with the same number exclusively for your Apple Watch. Thinking of sporting both Nike and Hermes? Don’t let us stop you.
